Hello, We are a company that conduct surveys and evaluate other companies.

Once we have a contract to do you would be directed to the company or outlet and you would be given the funds you need to do the job(either purchase things or require services) after which you would write a comment on the staffs activities and give a detailed record of your experience. Examples of details you would forward to us are 1) How long it took you to get services. 2) Smartness of the attendant 3) Customer service professionalism 4) Sometimes you might be required to upset the attendant to see how they react to clients when they get tensed (under pressure). We turn the information (you gave us) over to the company executives and they would carry out their own duties in improving their services. Most companies employ our assistance when people give complaints about their services or when they feel there are needs for them to improve their customer service. Your Identity would be kept confidential as the job states (secret shopper) you would be paid $100 for every survey you carry out bonus on your transportation allowance and funds would be given to you if you have to dine as part of the duty.
